Apple TV+ reportedly bought the rights to a film about the life of Audrey Hepburn. And Rooney Mara, best known for her role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will take the lead.

It’s just one of many projects with big stars headed for Apple’s streaming service.

Audrey Hepburn is coming to Apple TV+… sort of

The initial details of the Audrey Hepburn biopic come from Deadline.

Rooney Mara physically resembles the iconic actress of such films as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which surely helped secure the role. But beyond that, she picked up an Oscar nomination for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and another for Carol.

Michael Mitnick (Vinyl) is writing the film. The unconfirmed report also says Oscar-nominee Luca Guadagnino (Call Me by Your Name) will direct.

At this early point, it’s not known when the Apple TV+ film about Audrey Hepburn will premiere.

Other celebrities on Apple TV+

Apple knows that big subscription numbers don’t come without big stars, and its streaming service has plenty of them. There’s Jennifer Anniston, Billy Crudup and Reese Witherspoon in The Morning Show. Jason Momoa stars in See. Justin Timberlake showed off his acting chops in Palmer. Or Bill Murray and Rashida Jones took the leads in On the Rocks.

And these are far from the only major names on the streaming service. Stars like Stephen Spielberg, Chris Evans, and  Tom Hanks have shows or films. And there are ongoing projects with  Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott and Sophia Coppola.

Watching the any of these, or the upcoming Audrey Hepburn biopic, comes with a $4.99-a-month subscription to Apple TV+.
